Meet Muskoka Living Interiors.
I fell hard for their style.
It's a retail and design center and full service interior design firm.
In the Ontario, Canada region, MUSKOKA is a place but Muskoka Living feels like it is a design aesthetic...let me show you.....
To me, it is VERY New England Lake House.
I love the built ins, beadboard, tongue and groove, wainscotting, coffered ceilings and wood floors that are their trade marks. Looking at their portfolio has helped me to reel in my own style...I've been shopping for light fixtures lately and feel like I'm starting from scratch. My new home has no real personality, character or feel to it yet, so I was looking to do something different with the light fixtures....and I had been struggling with which direction I should go in. Until I revisited some of my favorites...this is a DESIGN 101 lesson...GO BACK TO WHAT YOU LOVE. You shouldn't care about what is in style, what is trending or what everyone else says you should buy (unless you are putting your house on the market, then maybe listen)...but in my case, I went back to the essence of styles I love and it has helped me tremendously in terms of what direction I'd like to go with my home...and it is this MUSKOKA LIVING direction...what I call NEW ENGLAND LAKEHOUSE. So go back through these pics from their portfolio and tell me what you think of their light fixtures. I'm a lantern girl. And I also love the kitchen island rectangular pendant in the 2nd to last pic above. Can't wait to get my hands on them!
